  2. Thanks for alerting me to his response. I hadn't noticed it. I responded to it. IMO, there is simply no justification for betraying your employees and investors except if you are aware of illegal or immoral actions on the part of the company or its management. Jed's claim now is that he was badly treated. Even accepting that's true for the sake of argument, it doesn't justify betraying your investors. It's not at all unusual for founders to get forced out of their own companies. And, again, I saw no evidence whatsoever of that and, from my perspective, we did everything we could to k

  3. Just Coin is a Gateway that just appeared on XRPCharts. If you go to justcoin.com, you are notified they have “upgraded” to ANXPro: I believe this is what you’d call good news.

  4. A cursory glance at SBIs most recent report will show the huge plans they have with Ripple and XRP. Weak marketing? I dont think so. Again, we were never the intended use case. Community? Ecosystem? the Japan consortium Ripple brought together via SBI created ATMs. We all use ATMs now. I think we are in good hands. I dont know what everyone uses Bitcoin for because buying things with Bitcoin kinda went in the crapper. No, Id rather see things like being able to buy things with my debit card loaded with XRP (SBI/WIREX/RIPPLE) and all the other things SBI is planning. Remember, from t

  5. @zenkert I understand Japanese and he really did say exactly that! He also said a few seconds before that XRP is predestined to become the global standard since 100 FIs are already on board with ripple. He said they are going to use XRP and informed the audience that it is 60% cheaper. He also said they want to use Ripples technology to target the Korean markets. They want to make XRP the global standard and instead of fussing over this coin and that coin, Japan should focus on global standards (like XRP). I'm sorry for not checking my english but I'm really exited just now. This is gr

  6. Hey Guys, Just to recap. A civil court case was filed by Ripple Labs against R3 in California on September 8, 2017. Ripple Labs is the plaintiff in one case (California) and the defendant in the other case (New York). This post goes into detail about the case filed in California. Foremost, this post has nothing to do with Ripple’s “procedural” win in Delaware earlier this month. Despite a tweet and some previous posts within this forum and on Reddit, yes, this case is still active (the case in New York is still active as well). Anything stating otherwise is incorrect. Yesterday, Oc

  11. “Community” does not equal XRP. The unofficial forum used to be filled with people wanting to build on the network, wanting to understand how the network functioned thoroughly, and wanting to discuss possibilities, ideas, concepts, the tech, everything. XRP speculators were regulated to one small area. Now, that’s pretty much the entire conversation. Everybody that wanted to build and try new things has left because we all just sit around wondering what Ripple might do. I was drawn to Ripple for many reasons but XRP was barely one of them. Yes, Ripple and XRP will do well, and so

  12. I have never been as sure about Ripple's commitment to XRP as I am today. I have never been so conscious of the scale of the challenge and the time it will take to come to fruition. And I am fully aware that I need to get a life. So I am moving to France. Toodle pip!

  13. Lot of people in the crypto community, which obviously leans Anti-Bank/Anti-Government hate on Ripple and XRP cause they are part of the "system". But we can at least get the environmentalists on our side since we don't have the power consumption issue that BTC has with POW. Ripple should make a treehugger pro XRP campaign. Something like "Ripple is Blue - But it is also Green" Then they can state the power savings over POW and how that impacts the environment, blah blah blah. Guys feel free to use this Idea.

  15. There is no doubt that Jed is charismatic and is great at playing the victim. But as David said above, weather Jed was "mistreated" or not (I am almost certain he was not) and even taking his story at face value, there is no possible justification for his behavior. Jed's story goes as follows: Jed was smart. Jed formed a company and gave himself a bunch of XRP because Chris Larsen convinced him it was a good idea even though he knew it was unethical. Jed got lots of VC investors to put money in the company, which then sold XRP, as an investment, to a great community which Jed created. Ch

  16. South Korea has by far the highest fiat liquidity of any other countries, they're the place where they need to set roots. They're probably the only country currently able to use XRP as a settlement asset due to the high liquidity and 0 exchange fees. Maintaining interest in South Korea is key until they get another country with high XRP liquidity (likely Japan when they launch SBI exchange), unlocking the ability to start an international bridge between 2 countries that can significantly use XRP as a settlement asset.

Best bet that people like Gates, and Yoshitaka have done their due dilligence and their research is better than your's or mine.

  20. Hello Everyone, Long time lurker and first time poster here. I decided to make a post that I believe will help the community better understand the banking landscape. I worked at a top financial institution for 10 years and left the banking industry close to four months ago to pursue other opportunities. When I left the bank I was a VP of Technology that managed the overall internal IT support for vendor supplied applications and payment processing services. A major part of my responsibilities was to ensure that all vendor applications and services that I managed met regulatory and ba

  21. @lucky I agree with your assessment of the "worst-case scenario"; basically R3 would become a massive stakeholder in Ripple's success. I like your perspective. However, I do not want R3 to get their hands on that XRP, even with the re-sale restrictions.

  22. ...made me go back to the SBI (174-page) financial report, where I got lost (again) I love that thing! Anyway, check out page 104 where it says: "Commercial use of cross-border payments between domestic financial institutions participating in “The Japan Bank Consortium” and overseas financial institutions joining Ripple’s global remittance network will be starting within FY2017" I checked and their fiscal year is April-March. Does that help? I know, March,sigh... soon...

  26. you are showing your lack of understanding of Ripple and XRP. read the write ups. SWELL was not an XRP Cheer event. It was for leaders in banking to come together to discuss the future. Once again, XRP was not created for us. It was created for institutional use. If you really get that, you will buy as much as you can and wait. i like tiffany and all the other old timers, but i make my own decisions. their blogging or lack thereof will not change my mind. do your own due diligence. dont rely on the "community" or other's "research. Invest at your own risk.

  27. Validators do a little bit more than ordering transactions, but ordering them is a major part - and the main difference to a lot of other consensus mechanisms like PoW or PoS. To the initial question: There are several things with "Ripple" that usually get somehow mixed together or are not 100% understood by lots of people. * Ripple, the concept: Just an abstract idea of allowing people to generate money on the fly by creating IOUs instead of immediately settling. * Ripple (Labs), the company: Obviously centralized, since this is US law. * Ripple, the ledger (aka "RCL", "XR

  28. Yup. This. Old timers are still hodling, lurking in the background. But the conversation does seem to be on a repeating loop. Newbies now are worried about what I was worried about 2 years ago. XRP will pump again. It will be an epic surprise and like last time some will be left behind because they were out of the market when it happened. HODL

  29. I bought in 2012/13. I rarely even look at the price of XRP. I want to do things and learn and be part of a community (that is wanted and has resources). It’s no longer rewarding to keep interjecting myself in Ripple related things that have nothing to do with me, haha. It feels a bit like unrequited love. Definitely time to find new interests!

  30. i think the problem is people expect to become rich overnight with crypto. people become bored when the price doesn't move. with stocks, you hold for 20-40 years until you retire. just hold, get off the forums, and live a life.

I think the following will all be announced before we ring in 2018: XRP in Escrow More international bank partnerships More verified xRapid adoption and usage Brad Garlinghouse and Miguel Vias win the doubles championship at the Nitto ATP World Tour Finals All of this will be great for Ripple, and XRP should push above 0.30 by the time the ball drops on NYC.

  33. While their was undoubtedly a lot of good that came out of SWELL (I think everyone would be shocked if a bunch of great relationships/partnerships didn't transpire), it's pretty evident that a lot of people on the consumer side of things (for example, some in the XRP community) lost faith in Ripple and feel mislead. So much so that Brad Garlinghouse (CEO) had to hold an impromptu Q and A session the morning of the last day of the conference. That speaks volumes. We don't know the entire story or what went on behind the scenes (did something fall through at the last minute???), so I don't want

  35. Yes, whole world is doing a similar thing in unison: Step 1a) Create massive liquidity pool via ERC-20 exchanges that serve both FIs and retail investors. I know of 10 exchanges in various countries that are coming online by year end, all of which use etc-20 linked tokens that link to the usual assortment of liquid, traded crypto like XRP (and the others, but they’re not important), which serve either financial institutions and retail investors or only financial institutions. They all have the same capabilities of millions of transactions per second and have an ETC-20 token pegged to

  37. Like this! “Companies like Ripple are putting a great deal of effort in the technology that many of us will use. This [blockchain] will help us improve the cost of our internal administration,” said Paul Snaith, manager of treasury operations for capital markets and banking and payments at the World Bank."

  38. I get what you're saying. "I can't be that lucky" is the major part of why I don't hype myself about certain news and/or when I "connect the dots" with some of the news. But that's no argument on how high the price can go, tbh xD

  39. you are misunderstanding me. we have to get to the dollar range first. many see this like a penny stock. big investors dont take penny stocks seriously until it gets out of the OTC. but once it gets out of the pennies it will get to the numbers you are thinking.

  40. The problem is that Ripple is “exotic” and there isn’t a developer community. I’m curious how many Ripple integrations have occurred without help from Ripple. If there haven’t been many, I’d be curious to know if Ripple offers the same amount of resources/assistance to everyone.

  42. I haven't been in Ripple/XRP for too long but I have read through a mass of older stuff and it seems that Ripple is letting go of the 'community' (and XRP) to focus on the banks and the ledger/network. That just makes sense. The community/investors/speculators represent what, 5% of the market? I just think they know that it's all about the banks. The hysteria of crypto speculators can only be bad news in that industry.

I'm from halfway around the globe though, so I didn't really press onwards to working there ("Weekly yoga at work" sounds nice, but I guess I would first want to check out SF as a tourist before commiting to move continents - also reviews on glassdoor etc. seem to get worse, especially in the areas that I'm interested in). Maybe there'll be some interesting job in Europe sooner or later - though the last bank I talked to has switched to H

  45. I'm surprised to see all these forks taking place off bitcoin (which has seen just over 6K at the top), bitcoin cash (was $767.00-Aug 2, now $330'ish-today), bitcoin gold ($480 oct-23rd, now $126.00 today) and who knows what segwit2x will be but it irks me to see xrp's price in the .20 cent range where the afore-mentioned bitcoin forks seem like they have zero use-case but because they're forks off bitcoin they retain some false sense of value in the hundreds of dollars..?? So all these bitcoin forks have more value than xrp? Hmmm..... Just thinking out loud is all.

  46. @FunkyGiraffe I completely agree with you. When you move value using XRP, it gets there in the time it takes to draw one breath, and it settles real-time. You can then begin trading immediately. With Bitcoin, you have to wait until the exchange decides to communicate it to the blockchain, and then, once it is communicated, you have to wait until the minimum number of blocks (a.k.a. "confirmations") before the person you're sending it to actually trusts that they received it. Even Bitcoin wallets don't trust a transaction until hours later; usually wallets won't let you turn around and
